What's good everybody? 21 Y/O Babby from the Newest Mexico. I'm a fabricator in Bernalillo county learning the Welding trade. I live with my family and I'm currently engaged. I've been into prepping since I was a kid, but never had the chance to really get started, and since I just got my life on track I've got a vested interest in protecting it ya know? Currently engaged and it looks like this current crisis is gonna push back my wedding which is slightly upsetting. Joined the navy when I was 18 and served for about 2 months, Good 'ol childhood behavioral issues FTW. I like making knives and tools a lot, and I've gotten fairly decent at it if I'm allowed to pat myself on the back a little bit. As for my concerns about current events, I'm primarily worried about martial law and the potential of having to bug out, because I don't have any ability to fight back against martial law and live in a desert with minimal water unless I go down to the Rio wich EVERYONE is gonna flock to. Anyhoo this concludes my intro, I appreciate you reading this long-winded intro

Welcome from Southern New England.
Fabrication is a great SHTF skill. I started my career in fabrication in 1972 in the USN… attending Machinery Repairman school (machine shop practices) in San Diego. I expanded that with welding, sheet metal forming and forge work once I got out. I’ve never been out of work in the almost 50 years that followed. I retired 8 years ago and I’m still doing projects for people. I guess the message is, stick with it, build on it, make it an art… a calling. Can’t go wrong.

That's wonderful! Yeah, I've had people telling me since I was a kid I could turn my metalworking hobby into a trade and only just recently jumped on it. I'm loving the heck out of it so far! and the culture is similar to Boot, so I'm used to it at this point. Glad to see a fellow fabricator here!

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.

Evidently you didn't read the agreement that you signed when you joined this forum? Specifically the part that all new members who live at home and have a fiance over 21 yrs old are required to post a picture of forementioned fiance in swimwear and or bednight lingerie. We ain't talkin' about Monday or Tuesday nightwear; Friday or Saturday night lingerie is what the contract specifically calls for.
We typically vote on whether or not said fiance is a keeper!
